Title:Stochastic Models in Reliability [electronic resource]
Author(s): Terje Aven

Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a comprehensive up-to-date presentation of some of the classical areas of reliability, based on a more advanced probabilistic framework using the modern theory of stochastic processes. This framework allowsanalysts to formulate gen eral failure models, establish formulae for computing various performance measures, as well as determine how to identify optimal replacement policies in complex situations. In this second edition of thebook, two major topics have been added to the origin al version: copula models which are used to study the effect of structural dependencies on the system reliability and maintenance optimization which highlights delay time modelsunder safety constraints. Terje Aven is Professor of Reliability and Risk An alysis at University of Stavanger, Norway. Uwe Jensen is working as a Professor at the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Statistics of theUniversity of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany. Review of first edition: This is an excellent book on mathematica l, statistical and stochastic models in reliability. The authors have done an excellent job of unifying some ofthe stochastic models in reliability. The book is a good reference book but may not be suitable as a textbook for students in professional field s such as engineering. This book may be used for graduate level seminar courses forstudents who have had at least the first course in stochastic processes and some knowledge of reliability mathematics. It should be a good reference book for researchers in reliability mathematics. Mathematical Reviews (2000)

Title:Evaluating Measurement Accuracy [electronic resource] : A Practical Approach
Author(s): Semyon G Rabinovich
Date:2013
Edition:2nd ed. 2013
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goal of Evaluating Measurement Accuracy: A Practical Approach is to present methods for estimating the accuracy of measurements performed in industry, trade, and scientific research. From developing the theory of indirectmeasurements to proposing new methods of reduction, transformation, and enumeration, this work encompasses the full range of measurement data processing. It includes many examples that illustrate the application of general theory totypical problems encountered in measurement prac tice. As a result, the book serves as an inclusive reference work for data processing of all types of measurements: single and multiple, combined and simultaneous, direct (both linear andnonlinear), and indirect (both dependent and independent). It is a w orking tool for experimental scientists and engineers of all disciplines who work with instrumentation. It is also a good resource for natural science and engineeringstudents and for technicians performing measurements in industry. A key feature of the bo ok is a new general theory of measurements that is both well-grounded and oriented towards real-life needs of measurement practitioners. Althoughthe traditional theory focuses on multiple measurements, single measurements are the ones most commonly used. This book presents methods for evaluating accuracy of single measurements and answers other fundamental questions notaddressed adequately by the traditional theory, such as how to combine various components of measurement inaccuracy when evaluating the co mplete uncertainty of a measurement result. For its second edition, the book adds significant newmaterial to incorporate recent metrological developments and expand coverage, including: The new method of enumeration of experimental data processing for i ndependent indirect multiple measurements which isprecise and does not rely on questionable assumptions. The analysis of reliability of estimates of statistical pa

Title:The Quality of Measurements [electronic resource] A Metrological Reference
Author(s): A.E Fridman
Date:2012
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides a detailed discussion and commentary on the fundamentals of metrology. The fundamentals of metrology, the principles underlying the design of the SI International System of units, the theory of measurementerror, a new methodology f or estimation of measurement accuracy based on uncertainty, and methods for reduction of measured results and estimation of measurement uncertainty are all discussed from a modern point of view. The concept ofuncertainty is shown to be consistent with the classical theory of accuracy. The theory of random measurement errors is supplemented by a very general description based on the generalized normal distribution systematic instrumentalerror is described in terms of a methodology for normalizing the metro logical characteristics of measuring instruments. A new international system for assuring uniformity of measurements based on agreements between nationalmetrological institutes is discussed, in addition to the role and procedure for performance of key com parisons between national standards. The conclusion describes a new methodology for assurance of measurement accuracy (based on theprovisions contained in the ISO 5725-series standards) that is now becoming more and more common around the world. All of th e theoretical statements and calculation methods are illustrated using examples. This book will be of interestto personnel working in government metrological services (or in the metrological services of legal entities), and to specialists who use measurin g instruments or make use of measured data in their daily activities It will be useful tostudents at technical universities when studying the academic disciplines of Metrology, Standardization, and Certification Metrology and Measurement Assurance and Met rology and Measuring Instruments

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:World energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few decades. This growth in energy demand will be driven by large increases in both economic growth and world population coupled with rising living standards inrapidly growing countries. T he last years, we routinely hear about a renaissance of nuclear energy. The recognition that nuclear power is vital to global energy security in the 21st century has been growing for some time. Themore we look to the future, the more we can expect countri es to be considering the potential benefits that expanding nuclear power has to offer for the global environment and for economic growth, IAEA Director General MohamedElBaradei said in advance of a gathering of 500 nuclear power experts assembled in Mosco w for the International Conference on Fifty Years of Nuclear Power - the Next Fifty Years. But such a renaissance is not a single-valued andsure thing. Legitimate four unresolved questions remain about high relative costs perceived adverse safety, environ mental, and health effects potential security risks stemming from proliferation and unresolved challenges inlong-term management of nuclear wastes. Failure to answer these questions adequately could imperil the nuclear revival so many have proclaimed is n ight. This proceeding examines the status and future of nuclear power because of abelief that this technology is an important option for the regional and the world countries to meet the future energy needs without emitting carbon dioxide and other atmosph eric pollutants. The objectives, addressed to government,industry, and academic leaders, discusses the interrelated technical, economic, environmental and political challenges facing a significant increase in the global nuclear power utilization over the next half century and what might bedone to overcome those challenges

Title:Environmental Radiation Effects on Mammals [electronic resource] : A Dynamical Modeling Approach
Author(s): Olga A Smirnova
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This text is devoted to the theoretical studies of radiation effects on mammals. It uses the framework of developed deterministic mathematical models to investigate the effects of both acute and chronic irradiation in a wide rangeof doses and dose ra tes on vital body systems including hematopoiesis, small intestine and humoral immunity, as well as on the development of autoimmune diseases. Thus, these models can contribute to the development of the system andquantitative approaches in radiation biolo gy and ecology. This text is also of practical use. Its modeling studies of the dynamics of granulocytopoiesis and thrombocytopoiesis in humans testify to the efficiency of employment of thedeveloped models in the investigation and prediction of radiation effects on these hematopoietic lines. These models, as well as the properly identified models of other vital body systems, could provide a better understanding of theradiation risks to health. The modeling predictions will enable the implementation of mo re effective preventive and protective measures for people residing in areas with elevated radiation background and astronauts on long-term spacemissions. Lastly, the models of the radiation-induced mortality established the theoretical foundations of a n ew individual-based approach to radiation risk assessment. These models thus enable one to predict the mortality dynamics andaverage life-span shortening for individuals and populations exposed to acute and low-level chronic radiation. Because of its theo retical and practical benefits, this book is as useful for academics, scientists and researchers workingin the field of mathematical modeling of biological systems as it is for those working in the fields of radiation biology, ecology and medicine. It is equally useful for Aerospace companies and various corporations that contend withthe problems of environmental protection and radiation safety

Title:Evaluating Measurement Accuracy [electronic resource] : A Practical Approach
Author(s): Semyon G Rabinovich
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The goal of Evaluating Measurement Accuracy: A Practical Approach is to present methods for estimating the accuracy of measurements performed in industry, trade, and scientific research. Although multiple measurements are thefocus of current theory, single measurements are the ones most commonly used. This book answers fundamental questions not addressed by present theory, such as how to discover the complete uncertainty of a measurement result. Indeveloping a general theory of processing experimenta l data, this book, for the first time, presents the postulates of the theory of measurements. It introduces several new terms and definitions about the relationship between theaccuracy of measuring instruments and measurements utilizing these instruments. It also offers well-grounded and practical methods for combining the components of measurement inaccuracy. From developing the theory of indirectmeasurements to proposing new methods of reduction in place of the traditional ones, this work encompasses th e full range of measurement data processing. It includes many solid examples that exemplify typical problems encountered inmeasurement practice, from general theory to practical applications. As a result, Evaluating Measurement Accuracy serves as an inclu sive reference work for data processing of all types of measurements: single and multiple, dependentand independent indirect, combined, and simultaneous. It is intended as a working tool for experimental scientists and engineers of all disciplines who wor k with instrumentation. It is also a good tool for undergraduate and graduatenatural science and engineering students and for technicians performing complex measurements in industry

Title:Statistics for Innovation [electronic resource] : Statistical Design of Continuous Product Innovation
Author(s): Pasquale Erto
Date:2009
Publisher:Milano : Springer Milan
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The objective of this book is to illustrate statistical methodologies that incorporate physical and numerical experiments and that allow one to schedule and plan technological innovation, similar to any other productive activity.This methodology shou ld be implemented through a structured procedure aimed at reducing the high rate of commercial failure characterizing actual innovation processes. In fact, it is well known that: i) The rate of commercial failureof a innovative idea is very high (9094 out of 100 proposals for innovation undergo substantial failure in the EU and in the USA). ii) Low reliability in the long run and sensitivity to usage conditions are the factors thatdetermine the failure of the innovation. The definition of an iterative des ign activity is an objective that can be reached by subdividing the complex innovation process into short steps in experimental statistics research. Theapproach adopted to analyze customer needs and the tools used to reduce unwanted variability form the f ramework for the statistical design of continuous product innovation. Starting from the observation that product innovation isachieved when a quality that is able to satisfy a new customer need is conferred on the product and survives over real operating conditions and time, this book illustrates the operative steps required to perform the wholeinnovation process iteratively

Date:2009
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The study of discrete structures and networks becomes more and more important in decision theory. A relevant topic in modern control theory reflecting this fact is concerned with multiobjective control problems and dynamicalgames. The monograph prese nts recent developments and applications in the field of multiobjective control of time-discrete systems with a finite set of states. The dynamics of such systems is described by a directed graph in which eachvertex corresponds to a dynamic state and the edges correspond to transitions of the system moving from one state to another. This characterization allows us to formulate the considered control models on special dynamic networks.Suitable algorithms are derived exploiting multilayered structures. Game theoretical properties are characterized. A multilayered game on a network can be used to model a certain trading procedure of emission certificates within Kyotoprocess. Optimal economic behavior and equilibria can be determined

Note:Bayesian Reliability presents modern methods and techniques for analyzing reliability data from a Bayesian perspective. The adoption and application of Bayesian methods in virtually all branches of science and engineering havesignificantly increased over the past few decades. This increase is largely due to advances in simulation-based computational tools for implementing Bayesian methods. The authors extensively use such tools throughout this book,focusing on assessing the reliability of components and systems with particular attention to hierarchical models and models incorporating explanatory variables. Such models include failure time regression models, accelerated testingmodels, and degradation models. The authors pay special attention to Bayesi an goodness-of-fit testing, model validation, reliability test design, and assurance test planning. Throughout the book, the authors use Markov chain MonteCarlo (MCMC) algorithms for implementing Bayesian analyses--algorithms that make the Bayesian approa ch to reliability computationally feasible and conceptually straightforward. This book is primarily a reference collection of modernBayesian methods in reliability for use by reliability practitioners. There are more than 70 illustrative examples, most of which utilize real-world data. This book can also be used as a textbook for a course in reliability andcontains more than 160 exercises. Noteworthy highlights of the book include Bayesian approaches for the following: Goodness-of-fit and model selection methods Hierarchical models for reliability estimation Fault tree analysismethodology that supports data acquisition at all levels in the tree Bayesian networks in reliability analysis Analysis of failure count and failure time data collected from repaira ble systems, and the assessment of various relatedperformance criteria < Analysis of nondestructive and destructive degradation data Optimal design of reliability experiments Hierarchical reliability as

Title:Semi-Markov Chains and Hidden Semi-Markov Models toward Applications [electronic resource] : Their use in Reliability and DNA Analysis
Author(s): Nikolaos Limnios
Vlad Stefan Barbu
Date:2008
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is concerned with the estimation of discrete-time semi-Markov and hidden semi-Markov processes. Semi-Markov processes are much more general and better adapted to applications than the Markov ones because sojourn timesin any state can be arb itrarily distributed, as opposed to the geometrically distributed sojourn time in the Markov case. Another unique feature of the book is the use of discrete time, especially useful in some specific applicationswhere the time scale is intrinsically discret e. The models presented in the book are specifically adapted to reliability studies and DNA analysis. The book is mainly intended for applied probabilists and statisticians interested insemi-Markov chains theory, reliability and DNA analysis, and for theo retical oriented reliability and bioinformatics engineers. It can also serve as a text for a six month research-oriented course at a Master or PhD level. Theprerequisites are a background in probability theory and finite state space Markov chains. Vlad St efan Barbu is associate professor in statistics at the University of Rouen, France, Laboratory of Mathematics Raphal Salem. Hisresearch focuses basically on stochastic processes and associated statistical problems, with a particular interest in reliabilit y and DNA analysis. He has published several papers in the field. Nikolaos Limnios is a professor inApplied Mathematics at the University of Technology of Compigne. His research interest concerns stochastic processes and statistics with application to rel iability. He is the co-author of the books: Semi-Markov Processes andReliability (Birkhuser, 2001 with G. Oprisan) and Stochastic Systems in Merging Phase Space (World Scientific, 2005, with V.S. Koroliuk)

Note:Time-to-event data are ubiquitous in fields such as medicine, biology, demography, sociology, economics and reliability theory. Recently, a need to analyze more complex event histories has emerged. Examples are individuals thatmove among several stat es, frailty that makes some units fail before others, internal time-dependent covariates, and the estimation of causal effects from observational data. The aim of this book is to bridge the gap between standardtextbook models and a range of models where t he dynamic structure of the data manifests itself fully. The common denominator of such models is stochastic processes. The authors show how counting processes, martingales, and stochasticintegrals fit very nicely with censored data. Beginning with standa rd analyses such as Kaplan-Meier plots and Cox regression, the presentation progresses to the additive hazard model and recurrent event data. Stochastic processes arealso used as natural models for individual frailty they allow sensible interpretations of a number of surprising artifacts seen in population data. The stochastic process framework is naturally connected to causality. The authors showhow dynamic path analyses can incorporate many modern causality ideas in a framework that takes the time aspec t seriously. To make the material accessible to the reader, a large number of practical examples, mainly from medicine, aredeveloped in detail. Stochastic processes are introduced in an intuitive and non-technical manner. The book is aimed at investigator s who use event history methods and want a better understanding of the statistical concepts. It issuitable as a textbook for graduate courses in statistics and biostatistics. Odd O. Aalen is professor of medical statistics at the University of Oslo, Norwa y. His Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 1975 introducedcounting processes and martingales in event history analysis. He has also contributed to numerous other areas of event history

Note:Recurrent event data arise in diverse fields such as medicine, public health, insurance, social science, economics, manufacturing and reliability. The purpose of this book is to present models and statistical methods for theanalysis of recurrent even t data. No single comprehensive treatment of these areas currently exists. The authors provide broad but detailed coverage of the major approaches to analysis, while also emphasizing the modeling assumptionsthat they are based on. Thus, they consider impo rtant models such as Poisson and renewal processes, with extensions to incorporate covariates or random effects. More general intensity-based models are also considered, as well assimpler models that focus on rate or mean functions. Parametric, nonparamet ric and semiparametric methodologies are all covered, with clear descriptions of procedures for estimation, testing and model checking. Important practicaltopics such as observation schemes and selection of individuals for study, the planning of randomize d experiments, events of several types, and the prediction of future events are considered. Methods of modeling and analysis areillustrated through many examples taken from health research and industry. The objectives and interpretations of different anal yses are discussed in detail, and issues of robustness are addressed. Statistical analysis of the examplesis carried out with S-PLUS software and code is given for some examples. This book is directed at graduate students, researchers, and applied statist icians working in industry, government or academia. Some familiarity with survivalanalysis is beneficial since survival software is used to carry out many of the analyses considered. This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on the analysi s of recurrent events or as a reference for a more generalcourse on event history analysis. Problems are given at the end of chapters to reinforce the material presented and to provide additional backgr

Title:Reliability, Life Testing and the Prediction of Service Lives [electronic resource] : For Engineers and Scientists

Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book is intended for students and practitioners who have had a calculus-based statistics course and who have an interest in safety considerations such as reliability, strength, and duration-of-load or service life. Manypersons studying statistic al science will be employed professionally where the problems encountered are obscure, what should be analyzed is not clear, the appropriate assumptions are equivocal, and data are scant. Yet tutorial problemsof this nature are virtually never encountered in coursework. In this book there is no disclosure with many of the data sets what type of investigation should be made or what assumptions are to be used. Most reliability practitionerswill be employed where personal interaction between disciplines is a necessity. A section is included on communication skills to facilitate model selection and formulation based on verifiable assumptions, rather than favorableconclusions. However, whether the answer is right can never be ascertained. Past and current appl ications of stochastic modeling to life-length can only be a guide for future adaptations under different conditions, with newmaterials in unknown usages. This book unifies the study of cumulative-damage distributions, namely, Wald and Tweedie (i.e., inve rse-Gaussian and its reciprocal) with fatigue-life. These distributions are most useful when thecoefficient-of-variation is more appropriate than is the variance as a measure of dispersion. It is shown, uniquely, that the same hyperbolic-sine transformati on of each life length variate has a Chi-square one-df distribution. Thisproperty is useful in the sample statistics. These IHRA distributions realistically model life-length, strength or duration of load under linear cumulative damage and can be combined as approximations in non-linear situations.

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book presents notions and ideas from the foundations of a statistical treatment of risks. Bayesian methods are frequently used in that area, hence a reasonable proportion of the presentation is devoted to such approaches.Modern statistical tools , namely Poisson regression, analysis of deviance, extreme-value theory and threshold methods are also used to identify and solve practical problems. The knowledge of such tools facilitates the understanding ofthe role of probability in risk analysis and proper use of outputs given by software packages. The book is written with a student in mind who has studied elementary undergraduate courses in engineering mathematics, perhaps including anintroductory course in statistics. The text emphasizes an underst anding of the theory and methods presented. Hence, comments are given verbally and an intuitive reasoning is frequent. This is not just another new textbook on elementaryprobability and statistics, but focuses strongly on applications within the field of risk and safety analysis

Note:The problem of determining the location of an object (usually called ranging) attracts at present much attention in different areas of applications, among them in ecological and safety devices. Electromagnetic waves along withsound waves are widely u sed for these purposes. Different aspects of materials with specific magnetic, electric and elastic properties are considered in view of potential application in the design and manufacturing of smart materials.Progress is reported in the fabrication and u nderstanding of in-situ formation and characterization of solid state structures with specified properties. Attention is paid to the observation and study of the mobility of magneticstructures and of the kinetics of magnetic ordering transitions. Looking from a different perspective, one of the outcomes of the ARW is the emphasis on the important role that collective phenomena (like spin waves in systems with amagnetically ordered ground state, or critical currents in superconductors) could play at the de sign of magnetic-field sensitive sensor materials

Title:Inference for Change Point and Post Change Means After a CUSUM Test [electronic resource]

Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This monograph is the first to systematically study the bias of estimators and construction of corrected confidence intervals for change-point and post-change parameters after a change is detected by using a CUSUM procedure.Researchers in change-poin t problems and sequential analysis, time series and dynamic systems, and statistical quality control will find that the methods and techniques are mostly new and can be extended to more general dynamic modelswhere the structural and distributional paramet ers are monitored. Practitioners, who are interested in applications to quality control, dynamic systems, financial markets, clinical trials and other areas, will benefit from case studiesbased on data sets from river flow, accident interval, stock prices , and global warming. Readers with an elementary probability and statistics background and some knowledge of CUSUM procedures will be able to understand most results asthe material is relatively self-contained. The exponential family distribution is used as the basic model that includes changes in mean, variance, and hazard rate as special cases. There are fundamental differences between thesequential sampling plan and fixed sample size. Although the results are given under the CUSUM procedure, the method s and techniques discussed provide new approaches to deal with inference problems after sequential change-pointdetection, and they also contribute to the theoretical aspects of sequential analysis. Many results are of independent interests and can be used to study random walk related stochastic models. Yanhong Wu is a visiting lecturer instatistics at the University of the Pacific. Previously, he was a visiting associate professor at the University of Michigan and an assistant professor at the University of Alberta. He has published more than forty research papers onthe topics of change-point problem, quality control, mixture models, risk theory, and reliability mathematics. He was the receiver of Pierr
